I think that the makefile package should convert the long names to short

However, windows checks $HOMEDRIVE/$HOMEPATH first and $USERPROFILE

You will notice this by running Start->Run... cmd.exe on an account which has a home directory set, you are started in the home dir. However if there
is no home directory you end up in the User Profile path.

Well swapping the order so we use $HOMEDRIVE/$HOMEPATH preferentially
sounds like a good option then.  Any other ideas anyone?
